Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to install carpet on stairs?

The number of stairs you want carpeted in your home will directly affect your carpet installation cost. Putting carpet on stairs generally increases the labor time and requires a higher degree of detail than laying carpet flat. Where you live in the country also plays a role in your carpet installation cost. Carpet installation companies in smaller towns with a lower cost of living and a lower cost to do business (insurance, company vehicles, employee labor, etc.) can usually offer their customers lower rates than companies in large cities where the cost of living and the cost to do business are higher. Carpet pros will often quote you a flat rate per stair once they do a site visit to provide an estimate. They’ll take into account the size of each stair you want carpeted (including both the step and the riser), and what type of stair it is. For example, the cost might range between $3 and $10 per stair for labor only. On the higher end of the spectrum, box stairs or staircase stairs with spindles that must be worked around might cost between $15 and $25 per stair.

How much does it cost to carpet a bedroom?

If you’re building a new home, remodeling, or ready for new carpet in your bedroom, you’ll want to know carpet installation costs. Here are the factors that affect the cost of your new bedroom carpet:

  • Installation cost per square yard: From under $2 to over $6. Carpet companies have a labor cost per square foot for installing your new carpet. Depending on where you live in the country, that rate can vary greatly. This rate does not include the cost of the carpet.
  • Type of carpet: from $1 per square foot to $20 or more per square foot. The fibers that make up your carpet will have a direct effect on cost. As an example, specialty wool carpets may start at about $10 per square foot, while a manufactured fiber like nylon may be about $2 per square foot.
  • Removal of old carpet: from $1 to $4 per square yard. Old carpet is labor-intensive to remove and also costs money to dispose of or recycle. The cost to remove carpet will depend on how much carpet you need removed and whether your installation pros offer a discounted rate for installing your new carpet at the same time.
  • Subfloor repair: from $40 to $70 per hour (plus materials cost). If the flooring underneath your old carpet is damaged, it must be repaired before the new carpet is installed. Many carpet pros can offer this service, or you can hire a handyman to handle the job.  
  • Type of carpet pad: $1 per square yard and up, depending on the thickness. The cost to install carpet pad is typically included with the labor cost per yard of installing the carpet itself.

How much does it cost to install carpet?

If you’re ready to bring new life into your house with a makeover from the ground up, you’re ready to learn more about carpet installation costs. Installation costs vary greatly, depending on a number of factors such as the type of carpet, the number of square yards, any necessary repair work, the number of stairs you have, and where you live. Due to these variables, the national average cost of carpet installation ranges between $200 and $4,500.

To start planning for your new carpet, measure roughly how many square yards of carpet you’ll need. Research the main carpet styles and materials you like to get a feel for what they cost. Nylon carpets are typically the least expensive, and wool is one of the higher-end carpets. Prices per square foot might range from under $2 to over $10, depending on materials. Count the number of stairs you want carpeted; each one might average between $3 and $10 (or more for box steps). Carpet removal can be an added cost as well, averaging $1-$4 per square yard, depending on the company and regional disposal costs. 

How much is the cheapest carpet?

If you’re looking to reduce carpet installation costs, there are several ways to save. Start by considering your carpeting needs. Manufactured materials such as polyester and nylon will be cheaper than natural fibers such as wool. From big box retailers, starting prices for olefin-based carpet are approximately 50 cents per square foot — making the cost under $5 per square yard. Indoor carpets made with olefin fibers are typically the least expensive on the market. Keep in mind that olefin fibers are not as soft on bare feet as other fibers, so are often used in areas like basements, playrooms or indoor patios. Nylon and polyester are good options to reduce carpet installation costs while still creating a cozy feel. The face weight, fiber construction and density of a carpet all affect the cost per square foot. The cheapest nylon or polyester carpets can start at just under $2 per square foot, making them about $18 per square yard. Lower-cost carpet tends to wear out more quickly and show stains more easily, so avoid light colors and vacuum regularly to keep the fibers clear of dirt that might age it too quickly.

How long does carpet installation take?

You can expect carpet installation to take anywhere between several hours and a day. The length of the job depends on the scope of the project, room size, the type of carpet being installed and the condition of the work space. If your carpet crew needs to move furniture or work around other contractors, expect the project to take longer. Odd-shaped rooms with nooks and carpeted closets will also add time.

How do you plan for a carpet installation project?

Start by researching your options and figuring out the following:

  • What kind of carpet do you want?
  • How big are the rooms where you plan to install the carpet?
  • What type of backing is required?
  • Does the subfloor need to be prepared?
  • Do you need to make any repairs to your flooring?
  • When do you want the installation process done?
  • What is your budget?
  • Who is the best company or contractor in your area for the project?

Next, remove furniture from the room and give it a deep clean. Hire contractors to remove the current flooring if necessary. Schedule your carpet installer to have access to the room for as many days as they need for the project.

How do you measure for carpet installation?

The first step is to measure your room’s length and width, adding 2-3 three inches to each dimension to account for doorways and  trimming. Measure additional sections, like the other part of an L-shaped room. Multiply the length times width to get the overall area of carpeting. When measuring for stairs, make sure to measure all the way around the nosing of the stairs to account for extra carpeting needed.

What is tackless carpet installation?

Tackless carpet installation (or stretch-in installation) involves installing carpeting without the use of tacks. With this method, your flooring contractor will place the carpet over separate carpet cushions and secure it in place with a power stretcher, according to the Carpet and Rug Institute.

We couldn't be happier with both the carpet and the installation. Do yourself a big favor and call Baxter Carpet the next time you need new carpet. Not only will you get a fine selection of carpet, but you will also get dependable, professional guidance and installation.

We invited four carpet companies to our rental to give us a quote. Leon was on time and used an actual tape measure to determine how many yards of carpet we needed. Others used a laser. His quote was much less than the others and his feedback was just as good, so we hired him. A day later, our carpet was installed and it looks incredible! Highly recommend Leon and OK Corral Carpets! The price is right and the quality of the install is perfect!

I called Leon to inquire about replacing all the carpeting in my home, he called me back within 10 minutes and was at my house that same day to take measurements and give me an estimate. Two days later my carpeting was installed, his employees are very professional and friendly. I would highly recommend Ok Corral Carpets again.

Very friendly and charming. Not thrilled with the installation in a threshold. Carpet only meets tile on one side, on the otherside the space is visible to the slab below. Called and Kris and she responded right away and gave two reasons. 1. The way the carpet is woven in one direction this occurs because of the way it was laid out (by her installers?). 2. I was not to worry if it frayed because it is under warranty. The warrany form was fill in the blank with no details. Warrany covers the CARPET, not the installation. Nothing states the fiber content or style . Sadly Kris told me there was nothing she could do. Since this is a franchize with a subcontracted installer I guess I am stuck. Copare that to the wonderful transition in the last pictureon the left. I am disappointed that Kris "forgot to tell me this would happen after the job was done

Installed carpet and pad in my living room. A lot of other companies wouldn't even come quote just one room. Anthony did it with a smile. He has a very clean and efficient crew. I'm looking forward to working with Anthony for future projects as they arise.

Leon was great. Short sweet, no BS, great work ethic, started the job on time, finished quickly and cleaned up any mess. He even upgraded from 7lb to 8lb padding for free. If I had any more carpet to install, he would be the guy. Would recommend.

From my initial conversation to the final touches Ok Corral was extremely responsive, knowledgeable, professional. The install was flawless! The installer did an amazing job from start to finish including picking up all garbage. Installer even went above and beyond his job for my clients who are in their late 70’s, early 80’s. I would give Ok Corral 10 stars if I could. They will now be my go to carpet company. Thank you Ok Corral for such amazing customer service, professionalism and a job well done!

Leon came to give us an estimate the very day I called. We needed carpet, pad, and replacement of trim due to a flood in our guest room. When I called back, he was able to come to install the following day. It only took 2 hours, the price was VERY reasonable. We are so happy we chose a local business.
